This latest festival bottling, which is the first limited edition release to be overseen by new Jura Distillery Manager, Graham Logan, who took over from Willie Cochrane in September 2016, is said to deliver notes of chewy liquorice, black forest fruits and creamy white chocolate on the nose, followed by notes of orange zest, walnut cake, glazed pineapple and Crème De Cassis on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Graham Logan, said: “Tastival is all about welcoming people to Jura with open arms – not only to our island festival, but to our whisky - whether you’re a single malt expert or are trying it for the first time. The creativity that goes into our Tastival event programme is well reflected in this limited edition expression, meaning everyone can enjoy a taste of our Festival – whether they can make it to the island or not.”
